I made this cake for Valentines Day and it is one delicious cake. It's also very easy and that is always a plus. We have quite a bit left here because it bakes up in a 9 x 13 inch pan. And it's pretty filling. This is absolutely perfect to have as dessert if you have company or to bring to a pot luck. This goes a long way and it's tasty without being too sweet. I found this over at Recipezaar.
Tomorrow the schools are reopening (fingers crossed here). Hope the roads are all okay in the morning and there are no delays. I'm waiting for my son to start whining about it soon! Did you know he would rather just hang out at home than go to school??? Lol...Hopefully things will go back to normal and we can resume our routines again. I don't count on anything around here though since winter is not over yet!!!
